At the heart of Europe's financial centres, our London- and Frankfurt-based European Corporate practice advises on domestic, multi-jurisdictional, and cross-border corporate transactions. Our experience includes a focus on private equity, mergers and acquisitions, and life sciences transactions.
Our principle areas of focus include:
- Advising corporations on European and cross-border M&A transactions, joint ventures, and reorganizations.
- Advising on both venture capital for growth companies and private equity transactions, representing funds and other investors, and their portfolio companies and management teams.
- Advising on equity issues and on debt issues particularly for sovereigns in the international capital markets.
- Advising on corporate governance procedures and developments.
We act for a large number of organisations in highly regulated industries, such as financial services, biotechnology, fast-moving consumer goods, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biologicals, healthcare, and medical devices. Our additional sector focus includes retail, for profit education, and real estate investments.
What sets us apart from other firms is our multidisciplinary approach to handling transactions—the breadth of our regulatory practices complements our transactions experience, providing a strategic advantage to our clients. We also work closely with our tax, employment, intellectual property, competition, and finance experts to provide all-round support.
